Metal/Schluter Etc. Sizing

Do you find you seem to buy the same size metal for your tile jobs. I mainly seem to do 12x24. Tile thickness I find doesn't seem to vary much in the tiles I do. With 1/2 inch trowel and back buttering I was wondering. Seems I walk into the supply store looking for 1 size 3/8 or 1/2 and come out himming and hawing. Too much thinking on my part. I do a lot of baseboard tile too and I PL those on

I've used 4.5, 6, 8, 10 and 12.5. Depends on the tile gauge.
